Main article content
Officers in Cheltenham are appealing for information after a man harassed a teenage girl while in the town centre.
Police were called to the Promenade at around 7.50pm on Thursday 20 April with a report that a man who appeared to be drunk had followed a 16-year-old girl and harassed her while she was sat at a bus stop.
Officers attended and the victim explained how she had been approached by the man who said: "If you don't kiss me I am not going to leave."
It was also reported that the man had followed a woman into No131 The Promenade despite her asking him to stop.
At this time the woman has not been identified and officers are asking her to make contact so they can take an account of what happened.
A 42-year-old man of no fixed abode was located and arrested on suspicion of section 4 harassment with fear of violence in connection with the incident. He has since been released on police bail.
Enquiries have been ongoing since the man's arrest, including reviewing CCTV footage, and officers would now like to hear from anyone who was in the area at the time and hasn‘t yet made contact.
